My First Movie: iTunes U & Pod/Video Casting for Beginners

Benefits of Screencasting
There are two obvious reasons for screencasting some or all of the content for your classes. The first is that it makes your life easier. The second is that it makes your students’ lives easier.

Screencasting some of your lessons allows you to archive them for future use. It is easy to build up a library of content this way that you can simply access each year as long as the information is still current. For students screencasting and archiving lessons, either on a site like your own YouTube channel or iTunes U, allows you to flip the classroom. This simply means that students watch the lesson videos in their own time, at their own pace, and wherever they like. The benefit for them is that they can pause, rewind, or replay you as often as they need to in order to best understand the material. For you, flipping the classroom frees you up to work one-on-one with students, either to remediate things they didn’t get on their own, or to provide enrichment at the individual level.

Wifi and AirPlay for faculty using iPads

posted Jan 6, 2014, 8:46 AM by Charles Konkol   [ updated Jan 6, 2014, 8:50 AM ]

Starting Spring 2014 IT will have an unique WIFI channel for faculty who teach with their iPad and want the ability to mirror their iPad to the overhead while teaching. Faculty will be given access to the hidden WIFI channel which will allow the AirPlay protocol to work. If interested in using this in your classroom please email me.

Work with RVC Eagle using iPad

posted Nov 19, 2012, 6:58 AM by Charles Konkol

One of the downsides to the iPad is the inability to view native flash websites like RVC Eagle. There are a few apps that allow you to view flash content. Photon and Puffin are the two I recommend. Both apps allow users to view flash video and flash content. Out of the two browser apps I highly recommend the Puffin App. in it's latest release Puffin fixed a bug that put a box over the message when replying to an email in RVCEagle. Puffin also fixed some crashing issues as well.

Here is he link to buy puffin:

This application allows you to import a PDF then go to http://mysyncpad.com on any web browser to see your presentation. You also have the ability to draw on screen and save to dropbox.

2) Use iPad AirPlay along with Reflection App on PC

This setup allows you to mirror the display of your iPad to an instructor PC which in turn is connected to projector. This setup allows you to display all activities of the iPad to to classroom
